Vauxhall’s senior boss has said the Ellesmere Plant may be shut, axing hundreds of jobs for workers in North East Wales.
Parent PSA boss Carlos Tavares said the cost of making Astra cars there may be prohibitive after Brexit and another European plant could take over their manufacture in Russelsheim, Germany from 2021.
The Ford Ka+ is being killed off for Europe, dealers have been told, following the ending of C-Max and Grand C-Max ranges as well.
The cost of the latest engine technology makes Ka+ unviable and it follows the demise of PSA’s Adam, and possibly the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108.
